We brought this microwave to replace our 10 year old Smeg Microwave that blew up. This microwave is far worse than our original one. The user interface is terrible, you can add the time in 30sec increments. It takes longer to heat up food than our old one & it heats the crockery way more than the food somehow. It also heats very unevenly - you will have to stop it half & mix you food. It has other features I assume but the instructions have been put through Google translate & make no sense - so good luck working it out. Also, it has coil whine ...- so if you have sensitive hearing you can hear it’s high pitched squeal whenever you walk by it. Do not buy this microwave unless you absolutely have to - by an LG or Panasonic instead & save yourself $200.
Purchased in October 2020 at Smeg Australia for $400.00.
I purchased the sam34cxi for the functions and found that the griller only operates at low temperatures so ends up being an oven. To test the function after not having grilled effectively it took 10 minutes to brown a piece of bread ...
Purchased in November 2020 at Winning Appliances NSW, Crows Nest.
Bought this Microwave/convection oven after having a different brand for 18 years. Very happy with the microwave function but not impressed with the convection/combi. Everything I have tried has taken much longer than it should and sometimes does not brown. Only goes to 200C (old one did to 220C). Also the instruction Booklet is very basic. Combi cooking just says turn to C1, C2 C3 or C4 but not what that means or which food it suits. I am very disappointed in this and would not recommend to anyone who like myself uses the convection function regularly.
Purchased in April 2020 at Winning Appliances for $562.00.

Rolls Royce Of Microwaves!!!!!!
After returning a Ariston hotpoint (Garbage) ((cheaply made and globally sold under many different names))
I just received my SMEG SAM34CXI yesterday and I absolutely love it!,
I put frozen cauliflower and brocolli in cheese sauce on at 200c for 23 mins, then stirred and added cheese, then put in for another 22 mins, Then Boom!!! the cheese was perfectly browned on top and cooked thru perfectly.
What makes this so amazing, is that it used alot less electricity than my oven and got better results.
Its also much quieter than most microwaves ...
I have just purchased this Convection/Microwave Griller. This is my fourth Convection M/wave and I am really disappointed. The convection is terrible. It takes twice as long to cook than any other brand I have had. It only heats up to 200 degrees and doesn’t have a metal turntable so I don’t know if this is why. A jacket potato was still hard after 90mins!!!!!
Questions & Answers
Our 3 and a half year old Smeg SAM34CXI microwave oven stopped heating with an error 5 displayed. The warranty was for 2 years. This is disappointing since our previous microwaves from Sharp and Panasonic lasted about 15 years each. We were happy with it up to this point.

I have just purchased a Smeg sam34xi inverter with grill. Is it normal for condensation to build up between the panes of glass?
We have recently purchased a Smeg SAM34CXI and so far I have not been able to cook anything properly using the convection option. Even on 200 it does not cook properly. We have owned a Smeg convection microwave in the past and had no difficulties (which is why we have purchased another one). I rang Smeg but didn't receive much assistance. I am wondering if I am doing something wrong......
Sorry to hear about the issue with your microwave. Could you please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, address and best contact number. Please mark the email to the attention of Lesley. Once she has this information, she will be in direct contact with you.
Thank you for that. Actually I contacted Smeg again and was told to return the oven to the place of purchase. I have done this and a replacement is on its way! Thank you for responding though. Regards Joy
Hi JoyC, how did the new oven go? I am having the same issues with my oven. Donna.
